Aaron Rathy landed a heelside 900 to win the inagural Oakley Riot double-up contest, which was held December 2 during the Sea Dubai Festival. Shane Bonifay finished in second with his signature wrapped melon backside 720, and Keith Lyman took down third with a backside 720.
“Rathy showed his class today after only arriving the night before the event and getting straight into his rhythm,” event organizer Andrew Whiteman says. “The event was a huge success and we are looking forward to making the Oakley Riot an annual event. It is great for the sport in the region, where the UAE local amateur tour is followed by the best riders in the world.”
